First sentence of O how I love somebody: "Of all the swains both far and near, My eyes did ever see, There's one I love sincerely dear, And truly he loves me: The youth is ever with my heart, So kind he is and true."
First sentence of The pretty maid milking her cow: "It was on a fine summer's morning, As birds sweetly sung on each bough, I heard a fair maid sweetly singing, As she sat a milking her cow."
First sentence of Of a' the airts the win' can blaw: "Of 'a the airts the win' can blaw, I dearly like the west; For there the bonny lassie lives, The lass that I lo'e best; Tho' wild woods grow, an' rivers row, Wi' mony a hill between, Baith day and night my fancy's flight Is ever wi' my Jean."
First sentence of The banks of the Dee: "'Twas summer, and softly the breezes were blowing, And sweetly the nightingale sung from the tree, At the foot of a rock, where the river was flowing, I sat myself down by the banks for the Dee."
